She’s also written titles for artists including Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Gwen Stefani, Hailee Steinfeld, James Bay, Janelle Monàe, Jessie Ware, Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Linkin Park, Maroon 5, Nick Jonas, P!NK, Shawn Mendes, The Chicks and more.

In 2019, Michaels released “Inner Monologue Part 1” and “Inner Monologue Part 2”, a series of critically acclaimed EP. She also embarked on The Inner Monologue Tour, which marked her first-ever headline tour throughout the U.S., following a worldwide run with an incredible array of artists including Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, Niall Horan, and P!NK.

This year, Michaels continued to expand her musical reign. She contributed three songs to Selena Gomez’s new album Rare, including “Lose You To Love Me” — which hit #1 on The Billboard Hot 100 — “Look At Her Now,” and “Fun.” Additional songwriting credits include Dua Lipa’s “Pretty Please,” Zara Larsson’s “Love Me Land,” The Chicks’ “Julianna Calm Down,” “Tights On My Boat,” “Texas Man” and more. She also collaborated with singer, songwriter, and musician JP Saxe on the heart-wrenching ballad “If The World Was Ending” crossing over 1 billion streams. 

“The song is about being hesitant about this new, beautiful thing and just giving in anyway because you know that it’s really special. There are so many spectrums of love. One minute, you’re crying on the floor because you’ve been broken up with. Or, something didn’t work out the way that you wanted to. Then, all of a sudden, you’re kissing in a park and you’re holding hands with someone new and you’ve got all these butterflies. It’s just such a broad spectrum, such a range of emotions—love—and I wanted to distill its essence into a song.”

Not too long ago, she released a captivating and charming music video for her latest single “Lie Like This”, produced by The Monsters & Strangerz (Dua Lipa, Halsey, Maroon 5) via Republic Records.

“Lie Like This” tells an alluring story about a young woman who shares a challenging relationship with her loving partner. He thinks she is pretty, straightforward, and emotionally genuine.

But despite she’s a little too hard to handle, after breaking through her inner shell, he meets her beautiful soul and falls in love with her.

The easily relatable narration, the catchy hooks, and the harmonious melodies are combined with the passion red that colors the video. The electro-pop aesthetic of the composition accents a track flavored by a danceable vein, while Julia’s stage persona completely magnetizes eyes and ears from start to finish. Here it is evident how by now Michaels is the master in exploiting and showcasing the whole arsenal of her artistic skills, whether she is in front of the microphone or the camera.

Regarding the video, Michaels says “A lot of my fans know me as the awkward uncoordinated girl that has too many feelings. Well, I’m still that. But I got to shoot a music video where it was just me, in clothes that we’re so fun and way too tight and I loved every second of it! I’m still a long way from being a confident creature but I felt much closer to it when we shot this day. I hope everyone likes it and if anything, you find yourself dancing around too!”
